I saw it in huge bottles in the Lowes I just went and was wondering myself. Not sure the only ingredients are lye and water, though -

Roebic brand http://www.roebic.com/pdf/ProfessionalStrengthLiquidDrainOpenerMSDS.pdf - Liquid Drain Opener provides the extra clog busting power of 28% sodium hydroxide (caustic soda).

ETA: I just sent an e-mail to the company asking if lye and water are the only ingredients or if others have been added. I'll let you know what (if) I hear back.

If it's liquid you're going to have to do some math to figure out the correct amount to use to get the correct amount of sodium hydroxide. But if you get the dilution rate and it doesn't have anything else in there you can probably figure it out. Make sure it's sodium hydroxide in solution, not potassium hydroxide.
